"Keep the dream alive, because otherwise, one day you'll go, Ahh...could I have made it? If you keep trying, at least then when it doesn't happen, you know, you can go 'At least I gave it a go. You know?'" #goals #hope #toothpaste #brentisms #psychology #psychspot #dreams
A "new you" doesn't have to wait, and a "new you" won't magically happen on January 1st. But that doesn't mean a "new you" can't happen. It can happen at any moment you choose. Don't put magical meaning on a day.
Not one of us on this planet is able to easily achieve all we ever dreamed of without hard work, failure, missed goals, self-doubt, and most importantly, the support of someone we trust.
I have met many people in life who have said things like "Failure is not an option." You know what? They're right. It's not an option, it's a built-in feature of life. It will happen.
We're coming up to Christmas and all the business that brings. We start to put off plans and thoughts for the New Year. Why? Because a New Year being a New Start! Except it doesn't.
Man City Lost Once. Rival Teams? They Aren’t Even On The Same Playing Field
Learned helplessness happens when we don't believe we have the ability to change our world & that external forces are against us. If that's true, we wouldn't bother to learn or practice anything. We can change our destination, but sometimes we have to turn the corner to meet the success that awaits those who persist.
We need to help our youth athletes develop and use the skill they have, but it means nothing unless we help them know how to use the skill. If we don't help them develop that side of their game they will forever be building on less than ideal foundations. This is true in sport and life.
If we want to see development, praising a kid for being fast or for looking flashy but losing the ball 9 times out of 10 isn't going to help. We need to reward the new behaviours, the growth, and the understanding of teamwork.
It's OK to be sad. It's part of our experience, but we can't lose something we never had, and we don't know sadness unless we've felt happiness. Embrace your happycholy and drift away for a moment.
